obama campaign spent hundreds of millions up -- hundreds of millions of dollars while the republican campaigns went on, the vilifying mitt romney. i can show you the chart of the unfavorables as the attacks went on. i think that contributed to the polarization. hundreds of millions of dollars spent -- $4 billion, -- $9 billion, 70% of it is on negative advertising on both sides. then obviously it will have an effect on the electorate. all i can say is that there was polarization and it did not work. -- i will not go revise history, but i believe there will be major scandals, major scandals, the history of this country has been corruption, reform, corruption, reform. there are too many billions of dollars washing around our political campaigns. then i hope we will reform after that.

of this if it could be accompanied by rigorous management. president obama, prior to becoming president, the largest management he had was [ indiscernible.] >> i think that was a plug. the gentleman with the red tide. let's look for the microphone. >> i am with northstar policy navigation and james callan associates. we have enormous potential in the united states to develop our energy resources. it seems a lot of it is a communications challenge. when you have a lease it does not mean you will find oil. var, we talk about it having big reserves. it takes a long while. how do we communicate that to the average citizen? that will be the key to have a sound energy policy that can benefit all americans. >> the chamber is very active in politics, but we don't do presidential policy. i will refer to something that candidate romney said the other day about energy. he said you spend all your time in energy beating up on the existing energy system, which does a of a job. about $2 trillion worth of deductions, while putting $92 billio -- putting $90 billion into something else. the fun

was able to ask obama about obamacare. i asked, why is it that the middle class is still buried in this country? why we have millions of people out of work? why is it that half of our children coming out of college cannot find a job? why is it that when he took office, 32 million people are on food stamps? i asked him those questions. you heard his answers. as a result of those answers, the american people recognize that he and i stand for something very different. i will help the american people get good jobs and a bright future. [cheers and applause] even more importance than what was happening in the past was what he plans on doing for the future. he had the chance to describe his vision for the future. what it was was more of the same. he described a series of ideas that we have heard before. he talks about a stimulus and hiring more government workers and having the government making investments. of course, he talks about raising taxes. they plan to raise taxes on the american people and that will kill jobs. we want to create jobs and not kill jobs in this country.

with the sum of governments that we have today. we have barack obama back in the white house, democrats are holding the senate, and republicans holding the house. can you outline what you would like to happen? the thing that would be the easiest if we had republicans in the senate and in the white house as well? what happens if you have to do business, and especially with the divided government we have had? how come to get things done in washington? we have not been able to get things done in the last four years. >> the reality will face us because of the things you have been talking about. we are either in making a big deal or we are not. we are either getting the debt limit extended or not. we are either keeping a more modest but fairly important economic growth, or we are not. those issues are going to bring people to a fundamental reality that might be the same structure, but i hope not. it may be the same structure or division of authority, but it is not the same time. with it. -- you can either fix it or live with it. >> if we have the same make up that we have, politic

incentive to act. presidents -- president obama has stated without equivocation that he will veto an extension of the tax cuts for the above must bracket. they may soon realize that it is far better to extend 98% of the tax cut than none at all. this story in today's "financial times" which i commend to you reading here but i didn't bring it. oh, yes, i did. it's right here. republicans shift tone on taxing the rich. and it suggests many republicans are reaching that conclusion. now, that would be the breakthrough tax reform needs. democrats should seize on this. it is interesting -- for years, many of my colleagues have fought to end of the reduced rate on the wealthiest americans in the context of the bush tax cut debate per yet suddenly, when the idea of cutting tax rates for the wealthy is peddled under the guise of tax reform, too many people forget their opposition to it. that makes no sense. the contradiction just goes to show how deep the nostalgia for the 1986 tax reform agreement is. and for the bipartisan cooperation that made it possible. in the face of today's yawning de

were in elegantly stated. i think there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power in perpetuity. the reason i think that is failing is, even those americans, if you break down that 47%, there is a significant chunk of people, receiving social security, who have paid into it their entire life. that is very different from being dependent on welfare. that is a critical safety net our society has counted on that we need to insure remain strong for generations to come. even those who are receiving welfare right now, most americans do not want to stay dependent on government. they want to work for the american dream. they want to work to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as possible dependent on government, to keep voting democratic, is not succeeding. americans want to stand on their own feet. >> that is the craziest thing i ever hear

then obama will be reelected any chance the -- and a chance that democrats will maintain control of the senate. given the fact that you said earlier that you do not like to compromise, how can you be effective in that landscape? >> the premise of your question is not exactly right. i never said i do not like to compromise. what i said is, i said my philosophy is the same as reagan's -- if they offer you half a loaf, you take it. i am happy to compromise with democrats, republicans, independents, libertarians, everyone. i am joked about compromising with martians. i would compromise if they are solving the problem. if they are shrinking spending and shrinking the debt. if god forbid barack obama is reelected and harry reid remains majority leader, i will fight every day to defend texas and free-market principles. i think there's a very real possibility that the obama administration will go directly after fracking, which is opening enormous oil and gas resources. >> one minute left, and we want mr. sadler to jump in. >> mr. sadler, you will join a most republican delegation from texas

sometimes more important. this year for obama in particular. >> the fact that the headline seems to be -- the gaff ise of the headline. >> -- the gaffe is the headline. >> i am wondering what would be the most important thing for me to look at when i am watching the debate. what would be the number 1. the debate is open. what should i be looking at? >> my perspective would be the thing you want to look for is, democratic leadership. how does this person perform democratic leadership? as americans we have conflicting expectations that the president be democratic, or ordinary, someone who acts like we would, someone who will subordinate themselves to the public will and be a public servant. someone who was democratic and with the people, but someone who is leaderly, at the top of the hierarchy. someone who is extraordinary and can take charge of public problems rather than just take order. and there has to be a very delicate balance. that seems to me what gets overstepped. that is what i look at. you look at times when it is overstaffed. george w. -- george h. w. bush looking at his watc
